MAURA Higgins has liked a tweet calling her ex Curtis Pritchard “a villain” after he kissed the girl he was accused of cheating on her with.
Maura took a swipe at Curtis after a Love Island fan slammed the ballroom dancer on the social media site.
The fan shared photos of former couple Maura and Curtis and labelled them ‘perceived villa villain’ and ‘actual villa villain’ respectively, following reports he snogged dancer Amber Pierson behind her back after they left the ITV2 show.
Maura, 29, liked the post after being furious with the hunk, who was spotted being intimate with Amber in The Sun’s exclusive pictures.
The Love Islander even took to social media to vent her anguish.
There was previously speculation about Curtis’ relationship with Amber, and Irish beauty Maura is raging that she didn’t “follow her gut”.
Maura tweeted, “The truth always comes out in the end” then posted on Instagram: “Always trust your first gut instincts. If you genuinely feel in your heart and soul that something is wrong, it usually is.”
A source told us: “Maura feels humiliated, as she had suspicions of Curtis cheating and believes now she should have trusted her gut feeling at the time. She feels she stayed in the relationship too long and should have cut ties when she started to have doubts.
“Curtis is adamant his relationship with Maura ended long before his romance started with Amber.
“But he’s not stupid and can see how it looks.
“Maura is in a really great place right now, though. She’s got really good mates around her and is focusing on herself, on her career and the many exciting projects she has coming up.”
Curtis had insisted that he and Amber were simply pals after rumours grew that their relationship began before he and Maura split up in March.
Curtis took Amber on a double date last week with ex-Strictly star brother AJ, 25, and his girlfriend Abbie Quinnen.
They went for a meal in London before strolling home.
Curtis tenderly took care not to knock a pink hat off Amber’s head as they locked lips.
An insider said: “It’s game over for Curtis and Amber pretending they are just pals. Their ‘friends’ line fooled no one.”
